and pennsylvania, you can't be happy about that if you're mitt romney, can you? >> no. and this is why democrats -- this is why incumbents and especially democrats have pushed for these early voting, that they really want it because it cuts into the time for mitt romney, in this case, to challenge the democratic incumbent, to come in and try to knock him down a peg. this is really a question about turnout. the people who are likely to be early voters are unlikely to be persuadable voters. if you care enough about politics that you're willing to go down to the county courthouse six weeks in advance, you're probably not drift anything the wind. but the key here, again, is that it gives democrats who struggle on person-by-person turnout versus republicans more time to load up vans, get people down to the courthouse -- megyn: question for you before i let you go, do we know how people, when we get to november 6th, are we going to get to know where they stand? >> no. but what we will get, you'll come pack and see us, on election night you'll get a big count at the beginning. in some states county-by-
